    I have a minimum on house wash, driveway and gutter cleaning but not for roofs. Starting in 2013 prices are going up (cause of cost) and I will now have a minimum on roof cleaning.

    If I'm talking to a residential price shopper I try to be quick to let them l know I'll be higher than most.

    Of course it would be a different story if we were strapped for work.

    Agreed. If I get the feeling someone is price shopping me for their carpet cleaning, I'll explain to them up front that I am NOT gonna be the cheapest guy out there. I'll measure up the square footage, then I have a 10 step "Process" presentation I go over them with, and give them the price. They don't need square footage price...they need to hear the overall price, and feel comfortable in your professionality.

    I charge a LOT per square foot. Not quite as much as Ron, but about twice as much as the more expensive guys on here. I also go above and beyond on the cleaning. I hear "My carpets have NEVER looked this good before" from clients who have their carpets cleaned regularly, pretty often.

    You've got to pick your market, and stick to it.
    WARNING: I am the guy who knows nothing about PW'ing...so I'll be asking stupid questions for awhile. Thanks for being patient with me.

    I never quote a cost per sf. I may measure to drive if it is big or also has a circle driveway but my minimum is $250 so many times I will tell the customer that for $250 I can clean the driveway and while I'm here I'll clean the patio or their vinyl siding or their sidewalks or the chimney or something to make my $250 sound like a good deal. Many times it will grow into $300 - $500. Once your are there give them a shopping list. Last month I went to a house and quoted $250 for a drive and circle drive and some sidewalks. While I was there I quoted the patio, garage floor, back patio, and some stairs and told them these prices were good if there were done while I was there to do the drive. I arrived to do a $250 job and left with $600.

    I have a $250 minimum and I charge .10/ft against $250. So, needless to day, I don't do any $75 jobs. I usually quote other things (home exterior, sidewalks, patios, etc) and can end up at $400 -$600. Some I get and some I don't, but when I'm working, I'm making money.

    We have a $250 minimum charge so on most residential bids I usually tell them I'll do the driveway and side walks and maybe a backyard patio for the minimum and then try to upsell them to their roof or home. I never use a sf price on residential, only commercial. And them I don't tell the customer anything but a cost to doing a building or parking lot or what ever.
